How to Get the Most Out of Your Wedding Dress Fitting
You don't need to schedule 300 dress fittings to get your gown just right. In fact, if you plan correctly, just three effective fittings—one each month before your big day—should do the trick. Follow these guidelines to make sure you get the most out of each appointment.
Broach Heel Height
The average gown is about five feet from collarbone to floor. If you want to wear very tall heels, they may need to order your dress in a longer length.
Bring Shoes and Undergarments
Ask your consultant what to wear with your gown; take these along to your appointments.
This is no time to be shy. If you aren't completely comfortable or happy at any point, your seamstress should know. These experts can work wonders, but only if you communicate!
Dance Like No One's Watching
Seriously. Bust a move at the fitting to make sure everything feels good and secure, so you can be comfortable all night long at your wedding.
